Connor's First Real Snow

Connor, like most kids in Tennessee, has never really seen snow... not a good snow anyway.  In my 30 years in Tennessee, we maybe saw 4 snows that were enough to go play in, and it still wasn't anything like what we've experienced here in Indiana.

He didn't get to see the foot that we got along with the recent polar vortex (and oh my goodness, wind chills of -40?! This southern girl is not made to live somewhere that such an event happens!), but he DID see the 7 inches or so that we got in early December.

We really lucked out that it snowed right before Gram brought him up here for one of our weekends. He was SO excited, and the two things he wanted to do most was dive into the snow and find icicles.  I am pleased that we were able to do both, among other playing we did both days.

I can't even explain how much fun we all had.  He was so excited that he was running around and talking about everything and trying to just take it all in.  I think in some ways he was actually a bit overwhelmed!

I just wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures of us enjoying his first time playing in this much snow.

Awww so cute!!! I grew up with snow but even though I was used to it, I was always excited waking up in the morning and see snow. It's fun, especially when you are a kid!

I would like to play in your snow. I am an expert snow fort maker.
